Help Your Public Safety Officers Handle This  Explosion of Homelessness

Whether because of a loss of a job, mental illness, or the death of a loved one, the causes of homelessness can be as varied as those who are affected by this modern-day epidemic.

The Los Angeles Police Department’s officers are being trained to reach out to the homeless people. Also, the LAPD works with caseworkers on Homeless Outreach and Proactive Engagement (HOPE) teams. The Los Angeles Fire Department surveys encampments to lessen fire danger.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department cleared out the homeless encampment along the Santa Ana River. Anaheim Police Officers urge people to get help at a Community Outreach Day camp in the parking lot of Angel Stadium. Santa Ana Police monitor the encampment outside the entrance to Orange County Superior Court.

The Redlands Police Department attempts to get those people the resources they need. Your city, too, is involved in combatting homelessness.

Your Department needs you as their Chaplain to be at their side as they walk through these days.

Speaker: Leticia Colchado

Learn from Leticia Colchado, an administrator in the Chief Executive Office of Los Angeles County Homeless Task Force on the current trends in homelessness.

See how you, as an SCCA Chaplain, can serve this growing population.

God told us that He anointed us to proclaim good news to the poor.

Chaplains are found in most aspects of public and private life in our society today. We serve in health care, public safety, corporate, and political organizations but how many chaplains do we know that serve the homeless and the police who assist them? Learn how chaplains can be used to bring hope to the fastest growing population in Southern California.
